The Old Statistical Account of Kirkmichael (1791) is quite extensive. The minister gives the population then as 1,276 of whom 384 were Roman Catholics.

Hi Forfarian

Thanks for link . . .

Great photos . . .

Find map enclosed . . .

The 3 Red marks are Shaw Families . . .

The 2 Blue marks wives to Shaws before marriage (Grant and a McIntosh) . . .

One Red dot is "Glenmullie" an "Alexander Shaw" B: 1785 ~ Crathnie . . .

"But" not sure if he is related ~ If so it must to "William" Shaw B: 1770 . . .

But I have no information on where "William" Shaw B: 1770 was born soo . . .

But it seems to show the family were quite strong in that area in those days . . . : )

It would be interested to know now who owns the land across the road now and is it still known as "Delachule" . . . : )

Yes, sad indeed.  We were along there today.  Seems like history has repeated itself as the original cottage also burnt down.

 The warlock, Gregor Willox MacGregor lived at Gaulrig at the western end of that map. A Jessie Shaw, Torbain apparently washed & laid out the MacGregor family.  She gets a mention in an interesting publication "Gregor Willox the Warlock", available from the Aberdeen & NE Family History Society, 164 King Street, Aberdeen. AB2 3BD, Tel: 0224 646323,  includes his family tree & costs under a tenner. 

Skoosh.
